World AIDS Day, Zimbabwe, Mother-Child Transmission

Dealing with the Disease
Cliff, 15 (in red sweater), is HIV positive. He lost his mother when he was young, and his grandparents Nicolas and Rita, now in their mid-70s, care for him and six others. "Six of our sons and one of our daughters died from AIDS," the grandparents say. "How can this be? Our grandson Cliff is also HIV positive, but medical staff saw this in time, and he is now on ARV therapy."
